Re: What is wrong with abreviations these days?

It makes good sense to have the acronym IoT, precisely because it makes it easier to search for, and it avoids "namespace clash" with the existing well-known use of IT.

IEEE is as it is because presumably there wasn't a well-known already existing use of IEEE for it to be easily confused with? (In general, I agree that "the"s, "of"s, etc, in names shouldn't be part of the acronym, however.)
